Petition SUNY to Stop Eva Expansion
We've started the petition "firstname.lastname@example.org: SUNY should reject the current application to approve additional Success Academy Charter Schools in CSD3, especially without a predetermined location for the school." and need your help to get it off the ground.
Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:

Here's why it's important:
We support CEC3 in their request for a moratorium on new charter approvals unless and until a full audit of existing co-located charters and their compliance with the law - including marketing, enrollment, student retention, and disciplinary policies - has been undertaken by the New York City Comptroller and the New York City Council.

Moskowitz is getting 14 new Success Charters in the next two years.
There will be seventeen new charters in the city overall in the next two years.
The city will be on the hook for space or rent for all seventeen.
The city will have to pony up the money for these schools even as the charter entrepreneurs pay themselves more than half a million a year in salary and spend millions more on anti-public school/pro-charter advertising and lobbying for politicians.
Currently the city is paying $32,000 per child at two Success Charters its forced to pay rent on.
Charter advocates are looking to get the charter cap raised or eliminated in the spring.
If that happens, the end of the public school system will be near.
The charters will bankrupt the system, stealing more and more resources from public school children.
It is not hyperbole to say the future of the public school system in NYC is at stake in these charter battles - especially the cap battle that is to come.
